A friend of mine just became a grandmother, so I decided to knit a little sweater for the new baby. The pattern, The Garter Yoke Baby Cardi by Jennifer Hoel, is available free on Ravelry. It's a great, straightforward pattern, made fancy by some lady bug buttons that I think came from Debra.
But then I started think, don't I have some lady bug fabric?
Sure enough, I did.
This adorable Reversible Sundress, pattern by Sew Baby, which I bought at JoAnn Fabrics, sews up really easily. The dress and lining are each one pattern piece, and the bloomers are made from 2 pieces. It sews up in an hour or so.
The sweater is now an outfit. Sometimes projects develop a life of their own and snowball into something a bit bigger than expected. But I knew I was saving that lady bug fabric for a reason.
